“Wow. It’s crazy. This is absolutely insane, ”he noted, speaking from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. “I am so happy that we can still have this award ceremony.
“My team and I should thank all the fans who voted for this thing,” Shelton added. “And I don’t spend a lot of time on social media anymore, but when I watch them, all I see are fans retweeting and voting for the People’s Choice Awards lately. Thank you so much. ”
Of course, Shelton also took the time to recognize the main woman in his life: “Thanks to my new fiancee, Gwen Stefani,” he shouted, adding jokingly, “It’s Stefani, if you need to. from Google to find out who she is. Thanks for my inspiration! ”
This wasn’t the first time Shelton adorably rated Stefani at the People’s Choice Awards. While accepting the same prize last year, he told the audience how deeply he felt about her, telling Stefani from the stage, “I love your shit. (On Sunday night Stefani, as she hung out in the car, reposted the moment on her social media accounts for fans to relive.)
Stefani, who won Fashion Icon at the People’s Choice Awards in 2019, returned the favor: “I love you, Blake Shelton, you are a baby,” she told him during that acceptance speech.
Shelton and Stefani, who are back together as coaches on NBC The voice, got engaged at the end of October. The marriage will be Shelton’s third, following a four-year marriage to singer Miranda Lambert and a three-year union with Kaynette Williams; it will be Stefani’s second marriage, after 14 years of marriage to rocker Gavin Rossdale.
